Through the myth of the Flood, common to various traditions, Noah's figure embodies a sort of rupture in the history of mankind. Summing up the past and preparing the future, he symbolizes the birth of a new world. Noah can be considered as a collective human being, who wants to settle a past existence, and start from scratch, by drawing new energies from the abyss of his being. That is why, except for the dove, a sign of hope for the new life coming, we won't take on board all the animals, just a humanity in motion, from the symbolic figure and dance of Noah, to the rays of a new sun.
